iPhone Update Can Find Closest ER

iOS 12 introduced the market to the Shortcuts app.  This app created by Apple allows many custom events to be done per each user. It can notify the phone user if calendar events come up or it can automatically calculate how much you should tip for your meal.  There are a lot of customization in the functions, similar to IFTTT (If This Then That).

One of the latest functions created is to be able to find the nearest hospital or ER.  All you have to allow is the Location Services and Data Services and you are good to go.  Without both of these enabled, the phone won’t know where you are at and cannot give accurate results.

While this is extremely handy for some, you have to make sure you do it before you have a great fall and actually need help.  It also allows one to pick their mode of transport to the hospital and will pull up the needed info to arrange it.
